Napoleon's abduction and his exile to Elba: his dramatic escape, his reunion with his devoted troops and their generals. His last, desperate bid for ultimate power and glory, so narrowly defeated on the bloody fields of Waterloo. Waterloo is a film on an epic scale with a cast to match. Rod Steiger, Christopher Plummer, Orson Welles and Jack Hawkins all contribute fine portraits of great men against a magnificent backdrop of battle and bloodshed.
- " Waterloo is solid, sometimes to the point of lumbering… But Waterloo succeeds in what it set out to do – to re-create a major historical event and place it in some kind of perspective." – **
